Wesley Acres Bedding Project

Help stock WAC with bedding for Invitation Lodge

We are converting Invitation Cabin to Invitation Lodge

Last year at this time, we asked for quilt donations for what will become Invitation Lodge. Our drive was a huge success: we now have enough quilts for all of the bottom bunks on both sides of Invitation, as well as for the Dean's Quarters. You can see a picture of some of the quilts, below.

Our goal is to create a more lodge-like atmosphere for weekend adult groups, so that we can market Wesley Acres a little differently when it is not being used as a camp.

This year, we are asking for donations of bedding, including blankets, white sheet/pillowcase sets, pillows, and pillow covers. We would like to stock 16 twin size blankets and white sheet sets, 8 full size blankets and white sheet sets, and 24 pillows. We are also in need of 24 pillow covers, the kind that zip and protect the pillow completely, as a barrier to bed bugs.

We are trying to stay with all white sheet sets for laundry simplicity. The blankets can be any color. Any brand is welcome. Many stores have sales on bedding during January.

Wal-mart has some inexpensive microfiber white cotton sheet sets that would work nicely: Mainstays Microfiber Sheet Sets (twin, $9.44; full, $14.94 for a set of white sheets and pillowcases).

Walmart also has some inexpensive blankets that would work. The Mainstays Fleece Blanket comes in solid colors (twin, $9.84; full, $12.84).

Walmart carries the Mainstays Standard Microfiber Pillow, 2 for $8, and bed bug protection pillow covers for as low as $6.74 each.

Again, any brand is welcome; the Walmart brands are only suggestions. All are currently on sale both in the stores and online.

Bedding can be dropped off at the Epworth United Methodist Church office in Valley City. If you are ordering online, please send your order to:
